Cold Brewed Coffee


Sunday mornings are for coffee brewed with cinnamon.  Not a creative breakthrough, but a nice way to make Sundays different from the rest of the week.  This Sunday, I tried something totally different, cold-brewed coffee.  I had read about it in an old New York Times in the the context of iced coffee – the profound difference between regular brewed with ice and coffee steeped in cold water for 12 hours never to feel heat.  By letting the coffee sit over night, it never gets bitter.  I tried it in the French Press since I was getting bored with my 2 cup microwave routine.  1/3 cup of coffee to 1 1/2 cups of water makes a coffee concentrate to be diluted with more water upon consumption.  Delicious both hot and cold, the problem is I drink twice as much coffee.
